I'm listening. Just don't try to sell me on some screwball concept like a bunch of hillbillies going on a Homeric journey.

Tough list for sure. And Barton Fink isn't getting the love it deserves. O Brother is tops though. It's quite an odyssey.

I love TBL, Fargo, No Country, O Brother, Raising Arizona, True Grit, Burn After Reading and Buster Scruggs so I consider myself a pretty big fan of their's. Having said that, I tried to watch Miller's Crossing based on the recommendations here and I could not get into it at all, I thought it was a major snooze fest. Different strokes I guess.

To each their own. Outside of the three Coen movies that I really like (Miller's Crossing, O Brother and True Grit), the ones I have seen really haven't impressed me that much. I liked Fargo, but felt it went off the rails every time they featured the pointless side story of the guy who had the crush on the sheriff. Seriously, what the fuck was that all about? Just seemed like filler. I liked Raising Arizona, but there's nothing particularly memorable about it for me. I didn't see Big Lebowski when it first came out, and when I did finally watch it I found it to be overrated as hell. And the ending of No Country for Old Men pissed me off so much I wanted to punch somebody. I actually bought the blu ray having never seen it based on all the glowing recommendations and ended up mailing it to a CP member who really liked it.

I really liked Raising Arizona because it has a lot of details that it doesn't bother to explain or expose. for instance, the biker/ hellion/ bounty hunter has the same peckerwood tattoo as Hi. so you can interpret that as that they belong to to the same prison gang or that the bounty hunter is Hi's estranged father.

...is one one of the funniest movie scenes ever. Hi starts retching and dry heaving once he realizes that he almost got killed

Someone never installed Glass Packs.

Guess that's what they call a Way Homer. . . .

That is a great scene.

I tried to remember why I was kind of meh about this movie, then it hit me - Holly Hunter's voice is like an ice pick in my brain. The more she's in something, the less I like it. I feel the same way about Vivien Leigh, which is the main reason I don't like Gone With the Wind. Hunter was annoying in O Brother, but her character wasn't in it all that much. Had I been Everett, I would have left her with the gangly bug eyed guy and went back to the sirens.

No Country for Old Men listed twice is a bold strategy.

I need to watch Blood Simple again. Probably a haven’t seen it in 25+ years.

And I see it’s streaming on HBO. Nice!

Was thinking the same. Only time Iíve watched it was around 15 years ago when Netflix involved dvds. Mostly remember that everything fit together perfectly.

They are a little tougher than most great directors to say a top 3 since they have put out a lot of great stuff.

Big Lebowski
No Country for Old Men
Fargo
